Kyra Watters is offering TRACK WORKOUT WORKSHOP (FREE)
WEDNESDAY MAY 13th, 2015 at 6:30 pm at Lion’s Lookout Track
The workout will address leg endurance & strength, upper body strength, core strength and overall muscular balance. It is a circuit style program that is done on the track, however it could work for most running routes. This style of training, done once per week, will help you maintain muscle mass, hopefully avoid injuries, and make you a stronger & faster athlete.
Included: Detailed instruction and coaching, and printed copies of workouts.
What to bring: water, workout attire, yoga mat or towel, one set of dumbbells OR one kettle bell OR one medicine ball * a weight that is challenging, but you are still able to lift it over your head.
Participation is at your own risk.
PLEASE RSVP by Tuesday the 5th of May.
